Miss all of the group games apart from the last one. Hopefully we won’t field any ineligible players this year.  ?

I agree but given the league fixtures are set to come out in two weeks they can’t afford to hold that process up as they will need to sort out the Celtic & Rangers fixtures and let them know early before sorting the rest of the leagues fixtures

Joy. Looking forward to the start of all the midweek games ?

 

Having said that, might get a game on my birthday for a change.

Wonder if we’ll get midweek games against Cove, Elgin or Peterhead again? The SPFL really do care about the fans.

3rd year on the trot in at this stage. Depressing stuff.

 

That said, i do think it offers the opportunity of a proper pre season.

Whilst Ive quite enjoyed the jaunts up there the last couple of seasons, going to grounds you might not normally vists, Id happily settle for somewhere a bit closer by this time round.

 

Ive never quite understood why we're in the North Section other than some of the Southern teams have to be due to numbers etc but we're not even the most Northern team in Edinburgh.

I would have thought, if any Edinburgh teams were to be in the North group, that Hibs and/or City would each be further north than us.

But, there's no telling what the SPFL will do...

Suits us Aberdeen based fans!

 

My dream group this time.

 

Dundee Utd (I think we are seeded to play 2nd seed at home, maybe a swap for Alloa)

Arbroath

Brechin

Cove

Managed to get to Peterhead last season and Cove this season.

I’ve never been to Montrose, Brechin or Arbroath so I’m hoping for one of them.

That's because they do the North/South split for the three different seeding groups. Would expect it to look even stranger this year as we should be in the North section and Dunfermline should be in the South section.

 

We should be a North 1st seed (along with Dundee, St Johnstone and Hibs). We'll get drawn with one of the North 2nd seeds, which should be Inverness, Ross County, Dundee United and Alloa, and three North unseeded teams.

Get out of group and then it’s just luck avoiding Celtic or Rangers and bingo you can be in another semi very easily. Hope we’ve not used up all our luck in the draws this year.

Hopefully get a decent draw and tick some more grounds of the list.  

Would rather not be playing in group stage of the league cup but it’s better than friendlies.

That completely goes against why the team's who join later do so.

 

Clue: They have European ties to play.

Selfishly, very, how about Cove, Peterhead and Montrose, throw in Alloa, since that will most likely be a home game.

Alloa maybe not if Goodwin is still there. Brechin are pish. Arbroath would be tricky and I'm not really sure about Stirling tbh.

 

I like to live dangerously. ?
